COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Retail gasoline prices in Texas have dropped by 2 cents this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide price at the pump was an average $2.09 per gallon. Drivers across the U.S. are paying an average $2.29 per gallon.

The association survey found that of the metro areas in Texas, drivers in San Antonio are paying the least at $2.02 a gallon while motorists in El Paso are paying the most at $2.13.

AAA analysts say gas prices in the coming days may continue to drop because of declining crude oil prices and a high volume of supply.

Texas continues to remain among the top 10 least expensive markets in the country.
